TACOMA -- The historic Elks Lodge Building is getting a major renovation.

On Thursday, Mike and Brian McMenamin led a tour through the old building. They shared how they hope to revitalize the century-old building into a new community hub for the people of downtown Tacoma.

Construction crews say they want to make the building look just like it did during its glory days. And the community has been helping them do it.

The McMenamins are also moving forward with plans to purchase and remodel Tacoma's Old City Hall into a boutique hotel.
